The Traveling Sisterhood: Scripture Tea: Thanking God for Every Day

Scripture Tea: Thanking God for Every Day


I woke up this morning and made myself a cup of Scripture Tea's Berry Medley mixed with Earl Gray--so delicious!  So here I sit blogging and drinking my tea in the mug from one of my best friends which reminds me that she "thanks God for me every day".  Such a wonderful way to start my morning and, even better, each tea bag has a little bible verse on it.  This morning's verse is "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).  The God who forgave the Israelites uncountable times in the Old Testament is the same God who forgives me time after time after time again.  The same "yesterday, today, and forever."  The God who caused four questionable women to be named unashamedly in Jesus' family tree thousands of years ago, displaying His love and forgiveness--even forgetfulness of the worst sins--is the same God who loves me today.  Bathsheba was an adulteress, Rahab was a whore, Tamar was also a whore, Ruth was a Moabite, an outcast, and yet God didn't see that.  He saw their faith, He saw who they could be, not who they were when they sinned, and He blessed their lives and gave them a legacy.  That's pretty powerful, even moreso considering the time they lived in.  It gives me so much hope when I realize how imperfect I am time after time after time!



Maybe I got a little bit off course, but when a cup of tea can cause you to ponder the goodness of God, that's pretty awesome.  Eileen Hadaway came up with the idea about 30 years ago.  And the tea is delicious, too, and super affordable!  I've lately been trying a variety of quality teas but so many of them are pretty pricey.  These ones aren't!  My favorite is the Apple Cobbler -- tastes like Apple Cider and gives me that caffeine kick I like in the morning (I'm allergic to coffee--too bad, so sad--even more reason to be grateful for good tea!)  The Apple Spice is $5 a box for 20 tea bags, about the price of good tea at the grocery store.  And the good tea at the grocery store doesn't encourage you with scriptures. ;) 

Sale
Scripture Tea is having a big sale right now on their Pumpkin Spice, American Hero, and Winter Berry Medley Teas (the one I'm drinking at this very moment).  You can get a bulk box of 100 tea bags for $16 which is 16 cents for a cup of tea. 

"My desire through Scripture Tea is to not only give you a 'taste' of God's Word, but more importantly to give you a hunger to have more of His love and comfort by turning to His bible for guidance. May God richly bless you, and all those to whom you choose to bless with Scripture Tea."  -Eileen Hadaway

    1. OOh...it does, doesn't it. I love this idea.

      I was thinking, it would be cool to have blank tea hangers too so you could write your own message (but I guess you could do that on the back).
